Ask any Texan mom (or, in my case, aunt) and they’ll tell you — Spring means days spent eyeing random fields and highway sides looking for the inky blue petals of our state flower.
What is it about bluebonnets that makes us go crazy and dress up our children and try to make them sit still long enough to snap a few photos?
It’s not like we haven’t taken these pictures every. single. year.
It’s not like it’s *easy* for a toddler to sit still while there are so many pretty flower to touch.
So many pretty flowers in which to frolic.
So many pretty flowers in which to… check your e-mail? Yes, this is what Nerds do when you bring them along for “moral support.” He does this all. the. freaking. time.
River had a great time running through the field of bluebonnets we found.
Such a great time, in fact, that she cried when it was time to go.
“But I wanna play in the pretty flowers,” she wailed, as Nanna carried her back to the car. “We can’t stay here all day,” Nanna replied. “But I don’t want to leave.”
I guess we’ll just have to come back next year.
Do you like our field of bluebonnets? It’s the *perfect* spot if you live in North Dallas.
There are three huge field of bluebonnets right in front of the JCPenney headquarters in Plano. Here’s the address: 6501 Legacy Drive, Plano, Texas. If you turn right onto Corporate Drive from Legacy Drive, there are spots to park along the road. So awesome!
Do you take photos of your kids in the bluebonnets? Where are your favorite spots?
